    Phone Won't Download Files through Browsers

    Is anyone else having problems getting their phone to download files through any browser on SS4.8? It seems to happen to me with both the Android Browser and Skyfire. For instance, if I go to twitpic and long press on a picture to save to the SD card I always receive a 'download unsuccessful' message. Also, I've tried downloading APK files from sites like Getjar.com and I'm receiving the same message...

    Pretty sure I had the same issue in SS4.7, but I thought it was just me as well.

    I have not experienced this issue, though I generally use xScope for web... have you tried it?

    As of lately my phone is doing a similar malfunction. I've tested on multiple roms:
    Chevys latest
    Cvpcs' latest
    And bugless'

    I've tried to use apps like byte tornado, and rapid downloader and the results are the same.
    File starts to download but the size is only a couple kb. Usually the same value like 85kb.
    Sometimes the file downloads and sometimes it says it does but file is 85kb.
    Also flash causes droidforums to load then force quit (not close) I uninstalled flash and I can visit DF.net. tried w

    I got the same thing going on too. I tried installing Astro File manager. Had no luck. Im wondering if it has to do with something on the SD card. I plan to format that when I get time. I factory set my phone, that didnt do it. Any other ideas? I really rely on this function for work, so not having it is gunna kill.

    I'm running SS 4.8 and can download pretty much and files I want. Have you tried byte tornado? When my browser wouldn't download I got byte tornado and it seemed to solve the problem.
